377 - Fine, forget the MOUSETRAP

With the Quikskim© of the BROCHURE complete, your TOUR is going swimmingly. Your FACTS are, in fact, based on FACTS, and that is proving popular with the TOUR GROUP. But even as you speak with renewed confidence (and with the TOUR GROUP), it's almost like you've found yourself in MEDIA RES, or one of the surrounding boroughs. A quick RECAPITULATION of the ENVIRONS may be in order.

You are in an EXHIBITION HALL (sponsored by Quetzelcolatl©). Three clay MANNEQUINS in AUTHENTIC HISTORICAL GARB stand along the NORTH wall, behind a LASER SECURITY GRID. Two SECURITY CAMERAS keep an eye on everything. A BROCHURE STAND near the door contains BROCHURES (one of which you have taken and read). The two other DISPLAYS in the room contain two FLINTY CLUB-SWORDS and a GOLD SKULL WITH JET EYES.

Exits are WEST (back to the LOBBY where the CAPTAIN© was so mean) and EAST.

What do you do?

Engage in CRIMINAL PURSUITS instead of TRIVIAL PURSUITS.

Read the HAZARD BROCHURE, with the yellow exclamation point inside a yellow triangle.

grab OBJECT THAT IS SIMILAR TO WHAT WE'VE ALREADY OBTAINED AND IS CLEARLY IMPORTANT -- ie the FROMAGE

make MENTAL NOTE to tell MERCENARY to poke that HOLE-IN-THE-WALL with his HOLE-IN-THE-WALL-POKING-STICK.

determine ANCIENTNESS ATTRIBUTE of KNIFE and FLINTY CLUB-SWORDS.

With newfound CONFIDENCE, confidently LEAN on DISPLAY... having no idea that this will cause the case to tip.
